Days 1–4 THE LINYANTI

Buffalo, Wilderness Savuti Camp, The Linyanti, Botswana

Savuti Camp is a classic safari property, situated on the banks of the Savuti Channel and within a private concession. Whether the Savuti Channel is flowing or even when dry, this camp gives you front-row seats to the untamed drama that unfolds here. Once you’ve flown into Botswana, you’ll head to the Linyanti reserve for three nights of wildlife viewing. Highlights of the Linyanti include four of the Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo – in addition to cheetah, hyena, jackal, wild dog, hippo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, and a fine assortment of antelopes. And birders can scan the skies, woods, and waters for fish eagle, saddle-billed stork, lilac-breasted roller, and many other species. The activities consist of expertly guided game drives, night drives, star-bed sleep-outs, and viewing from hides, as well as seasonal boat trips, guided walks, and catch-and-release fishing. Keen photographers can even make use of the camp’s ‘Photo Hub’, to review and edit their snapshots.
